Musket Cove Island Resort & Marina Selects iVend Retail to Power Fijian Beachfront Operations

May 10, 2019, Fiji – Responding to governmental regulations on tax structure for hotels and supermarkets in Fiji, the oldest family owned and operated resort on Malolo Lailai, Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina has made an investment to upgrade its IT systems to streamline their daily sales operations and comply with the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) VAT monitoring system (VMS) via the accredited iVend Point of Sale (POS).

IT Excellence & Unparalleled Customer Service

Tucked among the coconut palms, tropical gardens, lagoons and a stunning beachfront, this island hideaway resort captures the essence of Fiji and accordingly, management looked no further than trusted, local IT experts Datec Fiji Ltd. to evaluate and implement new technology for their resort operations, with a diverse range of accommodation choices, residential development, marina, day spa, supermarket, bar & restaurants managed by a dedicated staff of 175.

Embracing Digital Transformation in Fiji

According to Greg Levestam, IT Manager at Musket Cove, “We evaluated a few vendors who could help us comply with government standards and after our research, felt that the iVend Retail software was way in front of the competition with regard to functionality; we also knew we’d receive strong local support from Datec.” Musket Cove employee, Abhishek Singh agreed that the system was a big upgrade, and readily made accessible more detailed reports on daily operations, accounts, audit and stock take, all the while allowing them to serve their customers in the laid-back fashion typical of the Island.

Datec Leads the Local Implementation

Datec Fiji Ltd. managed iVend Retail accreditation with the Fiji Revenue & Customs Service (FRCS) VAT Monitoring System (VMS) last year. According to Raj Singh, Business Development Manager at Datec (Fiji) Limited, “We were pleased to add Musket Cove to our existing Fijian customer base and iVend Retail to product portfolio, already consisting of Sage ERP and other IT products. We found iVend to be above the other POS software we were selling due to its customisations that allow us deliver compliance with the Fijian government and also connect to Sage or another ERP.”
